Start with hands on the edge of the giant sloping scoop. Follow the lip of the scoop up and right and then back left to finish on obvious patina jughaul. Climbs better than it looks.


Extreme right on the west face of the Cave Boulder

Pulling off the ground on this felt stupidly hard to me and the rest of the people in the cave last week, but it may have been the warm conditions that were shutting us down on it. Mar 31, 2008

Heel hook your left heel and it becomes about V6.

Not the problem it once was since both starting holds down left broke of the scoop broke off.

Lots of people are starting this either crouched or with stacked pads to get their left heel on the sloper... You're at about V4. The actual V8 starts sitting, on one pad, put your hands and feet on the rock, then pull your ass off the ground. There's a few botched ascents floating around Youtube. Check out Andy's video for the actual way to earn 8 points for this rig. All the difficulty is literally contained in just that one move. The stand start to this problem (starting matched on the right side of the giant hueco) is gaining popularity as a V4... but it only adds a few fun, easy moves to Inner Sanctum, so maybe a generous V3?
